Dungeons and Dragons is a game where adventurers can create their own characters to roleplay with. The game was popularized by the hit show, Stranger Things, where the main characters bond over playing the game.
Dungeons and Dragons is especially popular in the disabled community because the game is accessible for all people. Here is a great video from Rooted in Rights: https://rootedinrights.org/video/do-it-2020-alexis/
Many players in the disabled community were upset about the fact that although the characters are customizable, there are no attachments or characters that represent people with disabilities. However, earlier this month Sara Thompson created the combat wheelchair for Dungeons and Dragons players to use. This wheelchair is called the Combat Wheelchair V2.0 and the stats, rules, and design for the wheelchair is below! https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1ysDrH2vqKz6NSGkf3_0WX5tV-Ch_t_N_
The Combat Wheelchair has been receiving praise not only because it is the start of a more inclusive Dungeons and Dragons world, but also because the Combat Wheelchair makes it so disabled players have the same powers and skills as abled bodied characters, leveling the playing field.
